I think the would look lovely!

 

What kind of wedding are you having? (formal, semi-formal, garden, church?)

 

What colour are you going to get them in? and lastly…do they make that flippy floppy sound when you walk in them?

good point about the sound.  i was a bridesmaid last summer and had to make a last-minute shoe change because i realized that the backs of the shoes made a loud slapping sound when i walked.  not something you’d notice during everyday wear, but when it’s super quiet in the church and you’re coming down the aisle, with everyone watching, that slapping sound can be awkward.

The shoes are more casual than the dress – they have a flip-flop feel to them.  A metallic (or black) flat with an ankle strap (and a small low wedge or heel) will look more polished and still allow your lovelies to be comfortable.  And an ankle strap will make the shoes easier to dance in, too.  🙂

They seem a bit casual for the dress that they are being paired with I dunno.

./facepalm – I didn’t read the part about the ankle strap . . . *blush*

I still think metallic and low-heeled is the way to go, but with a strap that comes around the back of the heel as opposed to around the ankle.  Just something to keep the shoe from having the flop-feel and to compliment the formality of the dresses.

Honestly, I think they look a lot like flip flops and are too casual for the dress. What about a chic ballet flat?

If you’re going to be spending time in a park and don’t want a big heel, I’d go with ballet flats.  I think they would look more appropriate with that dress.  Target has a lot of pink flats right now.

I think those pink shoes will look great with the dresses.  Super cute!

I just saw the ones with the rhinestones from zappos – those are adorable as well and have bling!

I had the exact same problem trying to find shoes for my bridesmaids as well, so I feel your frustration! I think the first pink sandles would look the best with the dress, they are cute, and we were looking at those exact ones with our dresses, however they didnt have the colour we needed.

I think both of those are just a little too casual for the dress.  The style and fabric of the dress are more elegant and cocktail inspired and the flip flop type of shoe would sort of….cheapen it.

How about something a little more dressy like these? (low heel, pink, no ankle strap)
